Residents of Sor No. 3, a farming community in the West Gonja Municipality of the savannah region has decried over the poor state of the road and telecommunication networks in the area.
Mma Taara, an NPP women organizer in the community who outlined the challenges faced by the residents of Sor No. 3 at a community engagement meeting with the member of Parliament for the area said Poor road and telecommunication networks are the major challenges faced in the area.
According to some residents who spoke with our reporter, the situation has impacted on the communities on the stretch negatively, making it more difficult for them to use it, especially when it rains.
The people in the area who are mostly farmers also complained that the road network linking the communities along that stretch is in a bad condition and affecting their activities.
They said, due to the bad nature of the roads, they are unable to transport their farm produce to the market and are sometimes forced to pay outrageous fares for transport.
Residents of Sor No.1, 2 & 3, all farming communities on that stretch and commuters who use the road have all joined hands appealing to the member of Parliament for the area, Samuel Abu Jinapor to as a matter of urgency facilitate for the rehabilitation of the road and the telecommunication network challenges to address the issues to improve the overall well-being of the residents.
Mma Taara also highlighted that the Mp has been very supportive to the community in various ways and optimistic that the MP will consider their plea.
Samuel Abu Jinapor on his part assured them of his commitment to improving the road and telecommunication network situation in the area as a member of Parliament to have a positive impact on the community’s connectivity and well-being.
Some few weeks ago, a truck carrying fertilizer to the community to be distributed to farmers veered off the road leading to an accident causing damage to the fertilizer.
